Sweet little things at DOKUMO

Are you still looking for something special for Christmas (or for yourself Smiley)?

Today, I visited the little fair DEKUMO. The name consists of the first letters of the words Design (design), Kunst (art), Mode (fashion) – and that’s exactly what you find there.

DEKUMO is a temporary platform for artists and designers. Most of them have their studios in Stuttgart and many are still one-man enterprises and not huge brands. Thus, you’ll find things at DOKUMO you won’t find anywhere else.

Looovely stuff! I could have spend a fortune… Smiley Only the fact, that some artists didn’t accept credit cards saved me…

At the end, we discovered the kids corner… and had lot’s of fun there, too Smiley mit geöffnetem Mund

Fluxus – The temporary concept mall

One should think Stuttgart is over satisfied with shopping malls after the Gerber and the Milaneo have opened their gates within the last weeks. However, yesterday evening, at the pre-opening of Fluxus – the temporary concept mall – I met hundreds of people who craved for another, alternative shopping experience.

You won’t find any of the big, international brands here, but that’s part of the idea. Fluxus consists of 16 shops and Cafés owned by local retailers, designers, artists and, let’s face it, awesome people. Smiley So if you’re looking for something special or a vintage product (yep, there are second hand shops, too) or you need to find an extraordinary present, Fluxus is the place to visit.

It was very crowded at the pre-opening yesterday and due to the public holiday, you weren’t allowed to purchase anything (big bummer by the way – but good for my wallet Zwinkerndes Smiley), so I only got an idea of the different types of shops. Here are some impressions I would like to share with you guys:
